Actually, that's a tricky one. If the lid of the capacitor is not scored, it's a solid capacitor. If the lid is scored like an electrolytic capacitor, even if it has a shell that looks like a solid cap, it is still an electrolytic cap. It isn't possible for a solid capacitor to leak. :)
no, they just pop and/or hiss really loudly from the bottom:roll:

Most of the caps I've seen are swollen, or leaking, sometimes lifting up from the bottom. I've only had one cap that "popped" - in fact, it blew right off the PCB when I switch on the computer. It was in a Deer brand (IIRC) pwer supply about 7-10 years ago.

Now I see these all the time on Dell PC's and LCD monitors. I even saw one in a Lexmark printer power supply (only swollen). I take them off and recap the board and they are usually good to go, unless the heat and dust build up gets them again. :(

The GPU I'm using right now have a bundle of swollen caps. Works like a charm (overclocked too!), we'll see if I ever care to replace them. :)

I think they should have called those "SHiT" caps instead. Those caps don't look too bad compared to many of the ones I've seen, especially when they're leaking out or blown all over the mobo.

LMAO, I was about to reply with that yesterday. Now introducing the Skywell "SH!T" line of capacitors, now with twice the dumb. :roll:

Well, they probably just get also the name wrong, lol. Usually these damn chinasee did not lie. For example CapXon could be translated as "cap" being shortcut for capacitor and the Xon as "con", with is shortcut for, well, con :D
Check out other "great" names like: Jackcon, Jamicon, Jpcon, Raycon, Asiacon, Canicon ... or even the Fuhjyyu caps. Do the translate of the last one for yourself ;)




Zotac 7300GT gfx card, Sacon caps, user vlask, SHW forum






PS. Zotac "fixed" gfx card the way it cought on fire: http://www.svethardware.cz/forum/showthrea...ll=1#post283635
...and the quess what! Zotac refused to acknowledge that it is their fault and because it label it as "physical damage", it the refused RMA! Of course when card caught fire, it is physical damage, you... But the user just played a game, not burned the card inside of running PC, because he want to kill it...!

Ah, the dreaded Sacon FZ series caps. I had an 8600GT with these caps and every one of them blew.

You are too mild. I believe, guys, that they are way more personall and direct. They IMHO exactly says what happen when you use these caps... They label them as "F*ck you", because that it how it sounds (Fuhjyyu) for them.

I was thinking that, but wasn't going to say it:roll:
Biostar in the NF4 era, huh? That's when they were still teetering between being pretty good and complete crap. They've come a long way!

Ah, you are too carefull. They are, on the another hand, very open and direct with their messages. NF3 era was not so bad... :) The these caps turned out to be bad. Dunno why, maybe they are even fakes...? Sometimes they like to pop-out of their base too:

Well, they pretty much skip on caps any way they see fit. But at least they did not insert ONE cap. In the previous example, MSI took out THERE caps that was, by design, should be there... So, hooray for Soltek :)

Well, they probably just get also the name wrong, lol. Usually these damn chinasee did not lie. For example CapXon could be translated as "cap" being shortcut for capacitor and the Xon as "con", with is shortcut for, well, con :D
Check out other "great" names like: Jackcon, Jamicon, Jpcon, Raycon, Asiacon, Canicon ... or even the Fuhjyyu caps. Do the translate of the last one for yourself ;)

PS. Zotac "fixed" gfx card the way it cought on fire: http://www.svethardware.cz/forum/showthrea...ll=1#post283635
...and the quess what! Zotac refused to acknowledge that it is their fault and because it label it as "physical damage", it the refused RMA! Of course when card caught fire, it is physical damage, you... But the user just played a game, not burned the card inside of running PC, because he want to kill it...!
well cap is short for capacitor but Con is the shorten in french for CONNARD oh wait ... Condensateur (wich is a Capacitor in french :roll: )

btw solid cap with vent arent solid cap so? if they have vent on it its Elecrolyte cap right?

That's a bit different. They blew because of a failed VCore mod on his board (remember those days?)
Well, a little bit more juice should not outright cause the explosion... I blame more the crappy design (too few caps on the primary side) and the PSU.

tw solid cap with vent arent solid cap so? if they have vent on it its Elecrolyte cap right?
Yes, vents are elyte only. But the exploded polymers did not have vents. They have them now, but that is different story :) They are now completely vented :D


Derek12 -
Gee they can fail due to other reasons (overvoltage, bad component on mobo, etc. They aren't indestructible.
Indeed. However in good design and powered by good PSU, they should not fail under any circumstances. But I did not trust the China junk caps anymore, even if they are polymer ones.

Ha, could have told him that without even looking. Panny's are some of my favorite all-around caps. If it's a Panny F-series, it's either an FM or an FC, or it's fake. It looks like they used the FM coloration, black with gold.
I hope for that guy's sake that he didn't re-cap that board with those, I know a lot of older ECS stuff has bad caps.
